Let’s Eat Grandma – Donnie Darko (2018)

YouTubeAmazoniTunesDiscogs

It’s a slice of wonderfully weird pop from from the fabulous Let’s Eat Grandma. I saw them at Rough Trade East on Friday night with a pal. I was so impressed. ‘Donnie Darko’ closes out their album I’m All Ears.

Let’s Eat Grandma – Falling Into Me (2018)

YouTubeAmazoniTunes – No Discogs

Norwich based multi-instrumentalists Jenny Hollingworth and Rosa Walton may be ethereal, but they can pack a punch. ‘Falling Into Me’ is Let’s Eat Grandma’s latest single and will feature on their second album I’m All Ears due to be released on 29 June 2018. “We got this.”

Let’s Eat Grandma – Deep Six Textbook (2016)

YouTubeAmazon – No iTunes – Discogs

Let's Eat Grandma

On face value, Rosa Walton and Jenny Hollingworth are a little unnerving. Just 17 years old, almost identical, experimental in sound and from Norfolk – that’s a sentence I’ve never constructed before.  They have recently released their debut single ‘Deep Six Textbook’ on Transgressive Records – home to Foals – with an album to follow this summer. The sound is far from juvenile, although the lyricism is endearingly childish: “I bet the starfish wonder/Oh, I was so obsessed.”
